The NEAR Protocol has announced a partnership with ESG DAO that will probably reignite development activity. This development reflects the protocol’s push toward the sustainability agenda.

Its involvement with such a rating platform will further highlight the network’s growing ecosystem, especially with a focus on real-world utility.

The announcement revealed that the partnership will aim to facilitate the creation of a superior type of ESG ratings. But this may not be enough to trigger a resurgence of development activity, as the metric was at its lowest monthly level, at the time of writing.

Low development activity often leads to lower investor confidence. Unsurprisingly, NEAR’s price action leaned towards the bearish side of things, especially in the last two weeks.

The weighted sentiment indicated that investors’ sentiment had dropped significantly since mid-November. Nevertheless, it was still notably higher than its current monthly level.

If history repeats itself, then NEAR investors should brace for another bounce. Interestingly, the observed slight increase in volume in the last 24 hours reflected an uptrend in its money flow indicator. A sign of accumulation near its current bottom range.

Well, the altcoin has already drawn down by over 55% from its current monthly high. Such a discount will likely be attractive to investors, hence there is a  likelihood of demand resuming near the current lows.
